Correction to: The stable geometric dimension of vector bundles over real projective spaces. (English) Zbl 0532.55018
Summary: The theory of bo-resolutions as utilized by the authors previously [ibid. 268, 39-61 (1981; Zbl 0483.55014)] did not give adequate care to the \(K{\mathbb{Z}}_ 2's\) occurring at each stage of the resolution. This restricts somewhat the set of integers e for which we can prove that the geometric dimension of vector bundles of order \(2^ e\) on large real projective spaces is precisely \(2e+\delta\).
